On the Road Again

Monday:  Oakland 3, Minnesota 2
Tuesday:  Minnesota 13, Oakland 2
Wednesday:  Minnesota 3, Oakland 1

That's not a bad way to do business, although it would have been nice to have borrowed a couple of runs on Monday as an advance off of Tuesday.  In spite of taking a pair from the A's however, thanks to a team from Suckville, USA, stopping for three in Chicago, the Twins find themselves a game out of first place.  Now it's time for a 14-day road trip.

Honestly, I can't tell you much about what happened the last three days.  As of Monday morning I was on a spur-of-the-moment trip to Cromer and the North Sea.  You'll get a pic or two at the end, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

So that leaves it all up to's your pop quiz.

1.  What was the biggest surprise of the series?

2.  What made Kevin Slowey's seven-inning, 12-run spectacular possible?

3.  Will Liriano be allowed to pitch seven innings this season?

4.  What impressions of the Twins are you left with after this series?

5.  Who gets your three stars for the series?

Those are the starts to some discussion topics, so feel free to indulge yourselves.  In the mean time, until I'm back and fully operational (and have all the sand out of my hair) tomorrow morning, I'll leave you with our Roll Call from the Oakland series.  A hearty well done to caseintheface, whose efforts embiggen us all.

Anyway, so where I was for the last two-and-a-half days was just outside of a town called Cromer on the North Sea, where I did a bit of camping.  It rained a lot, but views like this were more than enough to get me over it:



See you tomorrow everybody!
